A few names I'm hearing St. John's will be involved with: Marcus Evans (Rice), Peter Kiss (Quinnipiac), Michael Weathers (Miami, Oh) #sjubb

Because even if Lovett stays this year thats it. These kids sit out a year and replace him. Could have a nice Junior backcourt with Ponds and Simon and a good transfer.

We should just offer everyone who decommited Washington. Also does Peter Kiss come with Ace Frehley and Gene Simmons?

As long as we do not have to suffer the comical lineup that includes a 6'7 center that loses every opening tip, can't rebound or score, I am OK with a transfer guard. The first transfer better be a guy 6'9 or bigger though.

I like Enoch's upside. Big kid who is athletic and can score around the basket. His numbers might be low right now, but I think he'd be a good fit for us.

Doesn't Enoch's skill set remind you exactly of Sima and Yakwe's skills? This rawness did not appear to take a jump forward in either of Yakwe or Sima's soph seasons. I would rather have a bit more refined rugged rebounder and sacrifice the athleticism.

Paultz not to be disrespectful to you, MCNPA or anyone else but I'm just not sure about Enoch. He's a big strong kid but at least when I've seen him struggles with lateral movement. Also, as I ask and look for with any big kid. Does he catch the ball?? In that area I think he's just ok not great. Also I must say I don't think it's fair to lump Yakwe in with Sima. Yankwe is simply a traditional PF as opposed to a stretch 4 who does not have the physical bulk to play as an undersized center. He is however a much smarter basketball player who understands concepts on defense. I love the fact that he's a shot blocker who takes charges when that's the play to make. Playing time at the 4 and 5 positions is more a function of matchups but Yakwe can be a useful player, not sure about Sima.

Mr. JPM114. I have to disagree wholeheartedly with your statement about Yawke .... "He is however a much smarter basketball player who understands concepts on defense. I love the fact that he's a shot blocker who takes charges when that's the play to make." This past season he appeared to be lost on both ends of the floor, has no offensive moves and/or skills whatsoever (other than dunking off a simple pick and go), and often gets caught out of position. Taking a charge was simply a matter of him being in the right place (probably out of his position). I would very much like to see him improve and succeed, but don't see it based on his 16-17 season.

He's a pure athlete, can jump out of the gym and gives us some highlight reel blocks and (sometimes) dunks, but neither Sima nor Yakwe are traditional anything, C or PF, and both lack overall basketball IQ. If we can put together a more balanced team next year, maybe we see Yakwe contribute more and realize his potential.
